Senator Ted Cruz just came up with a brilliant idea for how to fund the border wall.

It would cost taxpayers nothing and would be a great use of money that just so happened to be in the hands of a drug dealer.

With drugs flooding into the US at our border, the border wall funded by someone who actually used our border to deal drugs would be the ultimate in irony.

We’re talking about $14 billion!

American Thinker reports:

It is legislation introduced by Sen.Ted Cruz of Texas last year — the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (E.L.C.H.A.P.O.) Act which would use fund confiscated from drug dealers like El Chapo and traffickers to pay for border security. As Cruz explained after introducing his bill in April of 2017:

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border.”

The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”

This is a smart solution to a big problem.


President Trump’s Senior Advisor Stephen Miller (see our previous report on Miller below) appeared on CNN to battle it out with Wolf Blitzer. Blitzer is known for interrupting his guests to talk over them so this was a difficult interview to decipher.

What we walked away with was a feeling that Miller ran circles around Blitzer. Miller is brilliant and really quick…Blitzer was no match.

Miller put the blame for the possible government shutdown on Democrats and praised President trump for his efforts on border security:

“This president has been unprecedented achievements in that area of border security. But right now as we speak, we are rallying Republican lawmakers to try to get a bill out of the House. And the fundamental issue here is whether or not Democrats will supply votes to pass border security or whether they’re going to push for open borders.”

“The first consideration in immigration is the welfare of the receiving nation. In a new government based on principles unfamiliar to the rest of the world and resting on the sentiments of the people themselves, the influx of a large number of new immigrants unaccustomed to the government of a free society could be detrimental to that society. Immigration, therefore, must be approached carefully and cautiously.” – Thomas Jefferson

President Trump’s Senior Advisor Stephen Miller is a favorite of ours. He articulates immigration like no one else. The left has decided to criticize him today in a huge way. Nope, it’s not for what he said on ‘Face the Nation’ but for his appearance. What does this tell you? It tells us that they have no argument to make so they go low.

He began his journey with President Trump during the campaign in 2016 when he would give incredible speeches to the crowd before Trump would come out to speak. His speeches (see below) are truly epic.

Miller knows how important it is for the government to get a grip on immigration policy and build a wall at our southern border.

You know President Trump is serious about this when he sends out Miller to speak about shutting down the government in order to get funding for the wall. He means business!

As you’ll see in the videos below, Miller is the perfect person to articulate the Trump agenda on immigration and the need for the sovereignty of our nation.

. asked White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller if there will be a partial government shutdown over a border wall. Miller says “If it comes to it, absolutely.”


Check out this epic speech from the campaign…It’s fantastic!

Trump spokesperson Stephen Miller just hammers Hillary Clinton! You will love every minute of this!

The guy is so dialed in on immigration and what needs to be done to reform it. One million people come into the U.S. yearly! 300K in the 70’s, 500K in the 80’s and now 1 million! NUTS!

Another favorite is when Miller schooled Jim Acosta on the meaning of the Statue of Liberty:

Stephen Miller got the best of Acosta when he schooled him on the Statue of Liberty!

The left is all over social media criticizing Miller for his hair. This tells us so much. They have nothing to fight back with except to try and criticize a man’s appearance?
